Visit Malaysia Year 2014 - Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, Kuala Lumpur

To support Visit Malaysia Year 2014, I will be writing on various tourist attractions in the country. Let us work together to bring in tourists to our lovely Malaysia.


When we talk about Kuala Lumpur, our minds would just go straight to shopping centres and tall skyscrapers and in some degree, that is quite an accurate description. However, if you dig deeper in the city, you will find different side of KL, one where greenery and nature come into the picture.

KL Bird Park

So much green in the aviary

Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is a change in scenery. Instead of the concrete jungle you often associate with KL, we have here a peaceful and serene spot where birds of various species fly freely in the park. Both kids and adults will have a blast exploring this world's largest free-flight walk-in aviary, a widely advertised statement.

Birds are free to roam around

Located within the Lake Garden, KL Bird Park is about 10 minutes drive from city centre. If you are dependent on public transportation, you can consider taking the Hop-On Hop-Off Tour Bus Service and get down at Station no. 14 which is right in front of the main entrance. Otherwise, get off at KTM Kuala Lumpur Station and walk for about 20 minutes.

Hornbills are definitely a sight itself

There are four zones in the park, with zone 1, 2 and 3 being free-flight zones while in zone 4, birds are placed in separate cages and small aviaries. Somehow, you feel like you are in the jungle or forest, seeing these winged creatures flying freely in the air. Instead of captive displays, they are more of being at home.

Looking at them just relax your mind

I have never consider myself being a bird enthusiast. Therefore, I was very much amazed with the large numbers of species of birds KL Bird Park has. In fact, some of these species are new to me, one that I have not seen in a zoo before.

Unknowingly, I spent more than 3 hours exploring the park. Watching these mostly gentle creatures take flight has an uplifting effect on me. I felt carefree, relaxed; as if all my burdens being lifted like the birds.

Kids will definitely have a blast here

Do take note of the feeding schedules for you do not want to miss that. Another event not to be missed is the bird show, scheduled to take place daily at 12.30 p.m. and 3.30 p.m. The interactions between the trainers and the birds are just marvelous and entertaining.

  1. I would like to add a tip here bro. If you wanna take photo with the birds, if you are under budget, avoid the one we we have to pay RM 10. Instead, go to the parrot section, for RM 2, feed the parrots [where they will come to you] and take photos with them as much as you want. More natural ;D

  2. Cool! It would definitely looks more natural than posing with them. Thanks for the tip!

  3. I wonder if this KL Bird Park is better than Singapore's Jurong Bird Park?

  4. I can't make any comparison since I've yet to been to Jurong Bird Park myself..but regardless about the Singapore's bird park, this KL Bird Park is definitely worth a visit..
